THIS MONTH? Will the
2A3 SETH S-240 Push-Pull Monos
DIY PROJECT from Dr. Lessard ever arrive?
Jean-Francois Lessard might
be the Dr. of Procrastination but some things can't be helped.
After running into some road blocks, resulting in the words, "this
sounds like two aluminum cans joined with a piece of 6 ounce test
fishing line", JFL has managed to put together something altogether
different, yet even more simple. In fact, almost scary simple. In
the words of Dr. Lessard, "I ruined two full copper mounting
plates but it was worth it." Does it sound like a Horus on
Robin Hood Series
SE Output Transformers
Mikey LaFevre decided to
take from the RICHES of the MQ vault to GIVE TO THE POOR, as in
the poor starving DIY loons wanting GREAT entry level iron for projects
with MQ quality.
Here for a Limited Release are the new Robin
Hood SE Outputs! These
outputs might just be the BEST entry level iron available ANYWHERE
at a price that is near impossible to pass up.

Audio's new Signature 45
Gordon stated it simple:
This is the BEST amplifier I have ever built. This new stereo amp
will only be produced in a one year run - With a tuned chassis,
MONSTER Parafeed chokes, Silver-Cobalt MQ outputs and other custom
offerings, the Signature 45 amp stands apart from the SET clones.

Here you are once again,
stuck on the computer, staring at the screen. And the sound? Yep.
Canned. Harsh. Tiny. Well, Gordon Rankin got to thinking it's time
for a change. With computer music downloads at an all-time high,
the time has come: Cosecant
serves up PARADOX
The 2003 VSAC was a
great success! And one of the reasons was the Bottlehead room, voted

TFA-2004 Parafeed shod SET monoblocks. Bottlehead's next kit offering,

Just how good is the
I've seriously only wanted
to own three really extravagant things in my entire life; a house
on a hill overlooking the Old City in Jerusalem, a Chagall painting,
and a legitimately high-end piece of gear so superior to its peers
that I would never part with it for any reason.... I'm one third
of the way there.
